Glock 26 .With a subcompact like the Glock 26, you should be practicing drawing and cocking as much as you do actually firing the weapon.

The Glock 26 primarily supports a two-finger grip, but there are factory (as well as aftermarket) extensions available to those who want to extend their grip. The G26 is more than just the 17 and 19’s “little brother”. When Glock was designing the subcompact, it didn’t simply make a shortened version of the Glock 19. The Glock company shortened the slide and barrel, but then the frame, spring, and locking mechanism had to be changed as well.
Glock 26 .Let’s take a quick glance over to our other old standbys, the older siblings of the Baby Glock. People often like to compare the Glock 17 vs 19 to see which firearm is considered the “ultimate”. The answer, of course, is that there is no one best gun and that different models are suited to different people and purposes. For instance, the G17 has a longer barrel, which can aid in accuracy, while the G19’s smaller size lends to easier carrying (whether concealed or open).
The same sentiment rings true for the G26. It is neither better nor worse than the other aforementioned Glock models, but simply different. Only through research, and of course by actually trying out the various guns yourself, can you determine which is the best gun for you.
